Yesterday brought the official trailer for the BBC's Doctor Who: Flux, with Jodie Whittaker (The Doctor), Mandip Gill (Yaz), and John Bishop's (Dan) Team TARDIS facing their deadliest challenge yet. With Jacob Anderson's (Game of Thrones) Vinder on board for a storyline so massive that it needs all of Series 13 to tell it, the threat known as The Flux is bringing the fight of our heroes' lives to their front doors. Sontarans! Weeping Angels! Ravagers! Cybermen! Ood! The Karvanista (?!)! Plus more threats from across time and space- all focused on eliminating the threat of the Doctor once and for all. Now, the BBC has released a new set of preview images showcasing the Doctor in the middle of what appears to be a war-torn field followed by a look at some of the big bads they'll be taking on.
Now with that in mind, here's a look back at the official trailer for Doctor Who: Flux, premiering on October 31st:
She's back. The Thirteenth Doctor is returning for the thirteenth series in what is set to be a six-part Event Serial. Since their last epic battle in Revolution of the Daleks, the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) and Yaz (Mandip Gill) have been exploring the universe together but with the Doctor now questioning everything about her past there, she will undoubtedly be searching for answers. This adrenalin-fueled; universe-spanning series will also see an addition to the TARDIS with actor and comedian John Bishop joining the cast as Dan Lewis who will quickly learn there's more to the Universe than he could ever believe. Jacob Anderson ("Game of Thrones," "Broadchurch") is also set to make his debut on Doctor Who as reoccurring character Vinder. Jacob's new role will see him join forces with the Doctor, Yaz, and Dan as the Doctor faces her biggest ever adventure. Series 13 is set to introduce some terrifying new adversaries and the return of truly iconic old enemies. Expect action, fun, scares, extraordinary new worlds as the Doctor and her friends confront a deadly evil…
